What is TOD? BRT?

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is about creating an environment where housing is accessible and affordable, and where everyone can walk or ride safely to the park, to school, work or shopping without getting in a car. Achieving this for the Ogden/Weber State Corridor requires a vision that inspires local leaders, developers and neighbors to think creatively about the possibilities of what the corridor can become and what roles BRT and TOD can play in its transformation.

Bus rapid transit (BRT) is a high-quality bus-based transit system that delivers fast, comfortable, and cost-effective services at metro-level capacities. It does this through the provision of dedicated lanes, with busways and iconic stations. Because BRT contains features similar to a light rail or metro system, it is much more reliable, convenient and faster than regular bus services.
